Truecrypt is the single best thing you can do to protect your valuable data. I encrypt the system volume, my only drive on my laptop. There is a performance hit, but I use an SSD, so overall its very fast, much faster than a conventional hard drive that's not encrypted. If my laptop gets lost or stolen, I have no worries other than being out a few bucks.
